of the obama white house. to r taxes, the inability propose real solutions to save social security and medicare for future generations. the prospect of higher costs and regulations due to the president's new obamacare law. how we regulate our local banks. nd global warming regulations. the production of -- production on federal lands, on america's lands and waters, have generated so much uncertainty. it's squelched new business in america. unlike real personal consumption nonresidential investment from the business community remain best low what it was before the recession began. mr. speaker this new normal for america, the growth gap we're in today, the prospect for america will go slower in the future is unacceptable. republican members of this house are working to accelerate growth. in a big step we can take forward tonight is to pass a house budget. it is a responsible, balanced budget. by estimations, it will raise our economic growth by 1% in the next year. that's significant. and adds $1,500 in new purchasing power per household. if you look over the long-term over the next
. >> this is barack obama's first visit here as president. no expense is being spent, and no amount of red, white, and -- no expense is being scared. three years ago, benjamin netanyahu publicly lectured president obama about the realities of middle eastern politics in his own office. the president looked on ashen face. spokesman are said to regard the other with suspicion, and despite recent efforts to dispel that perception, there is still no special chemistry. >> they had issues. i can recall the issues. there was some kind of tension between both sides, but even though they seem to say we must understand, we must remember, but behind personal feelings, there are interests. >> the state of the economy and social affairs was a big issue in the recent israeli elections. barack obama is likely to find a new israeli government less concerned about peace talks but very preoccupied about the unstable state of the wider region. what mr. obama will hear from his israeli counterparts is israel is very jittery. they are preparing for a fallout as syria disintegrates and hezbollah rearms. >> we are getti

program. >> the white house is on a charm offensive. last week, barack obama spoke on israeli television, addressing directly some of israel's concerns. > i have been crystal clear about my position on iran possessing a nuclear weapon -- that is a red line for us. it is something that would not only be dangerous for israel but would be dangerous for the world, dangerous for u.s. national security interests. >> in washington, it is no secret that obama does not have a good relationship with israel's prime minister, benjamin netanyahu. even if they put on a united front in public, as here in washington last year. >> they have fundamentally different views of how to advance peace in the area. the president started off by pressuring israel to make concessions, and israel, understandably, resisted and resented, and it has been like that for the last four years, unfortunately. >> israel looks to the u.s. to safeguard its very existence. republicans are quick to point out that while obama visited egypt during his first term, he never went to israel. they accuse the president of pandering more t

this it guy f-16's, tanks, 1.5 billion dollars a year? >> it's beyond me and you know, we've closed down white house tours, but president obama somehow found 250 million extra to give to the radical islamic government of egypt. it makes no sense at all. i have an amendment that would cut off aid to egypt unless president morsi publicly reaffirms the camp david accord and publicly recognizes israel and says he recognizes the peace treaty or they get no money because i don't think he'll publicly say it. i think he's catering to the radical islamic mob that he'll public do say before he gets more money. >> sean: tomorrow, you'll be speaking to the hispanic chamber in washington and unveiling what you call trust and verify which is your immigration plan. how is it different than say, what marco rubio is proposing in his plan or the president? >> well, what we're trying to do is add teeth to that bipartisan plan. we want to make sure that border security is it in there. as conservatives we're worried you're going to give legal status and give border security later, well, it never comes. like so man

. today president obama will leave for his first trip to israel as president. now, the white house is downplaying expectations for any major steps toward the middle east peace process, but of course the president's meetings and appearances have been very carefully orchestrated. he will check out the iron dome air defense missile launcher partially funded by the united states. he'll visit the dead sea scrolls at the israel museum in jerusalem to show he believes in the ancient jewish connection to israel. he'll lay a wreath at a zionist visionary theater tomb as well as slain prime minister's its ak rabin's grave. the president will have several meetings and working dinner with newly re-elected prime minister benjamin netanyahu. of course, no secret that the relationship between these two leaders hasn't always been a warm one. besides discussing peace between israel and palestine what a-- oe of the other major topics is iran's nuclear program. the president encouraged their leaders to move toward peace. >> now is the time for the iranian government to take immediate and meaningful s

and opposition are trading accusations tonight about the use of chemical weapons. president obama characterized activity as a crossing a red line, that theoretically would lead to har, consequences. chief washington correspondent james rosen reports from the white house. >> syrian state television broadcast images showing victims of what the government said was a chemical attack launched by the rebels outside aleppo. the regime cited 16 dead and 86 injured, most critically. >> this morning, missile was launched. that missile carried poisonous gases. the substance of the missile caused the immediate fainting, convulsion and death. >> kremlin steadfastly backed the assad regime with weapons and political support blamed the rebels. but opposition leaders swiftly denied responsibility for attack in any event would have exceeded the known military capabilities. >> the rebels don't have access to chemical weapons. they don't have access to watch the chemical weapons. >> indeed the regime of the dictatorial president bashar assad long been believed to possess one of the largest arsenals of biological
that would change my calculus said president obama in 2012. we will get reaction from the white house on this that will come at about ten: 30 as we get a closer look what is going on in syria. let's look at some of the known chemical weapons capabilities. it is estimated that sir was ha several tons of must -- mustard gas and nerve agents. they have 600 warheads capable of delivering those chemical agents. syria has an estimated 50 sites associated with their chemical weapons program. this is obviously big news. as the president said in the past this could change the calculus of this situation, bill. bill: martha, this is a war that has gone on for two years. this is the region we're looking at. turkey up to the north and west, israel to the south and jordan. you have the long shared border with the country of iraq to syria's east. capital city of damascus. what we believe to be the story of the moment, well north of damascus, fleer the town of a help bow -- aleppo. that is the largest town in northern syria. more than two million people call aleppo home. it was in this region the inc
